Essure

What is it?

Essure® is a permanent birth control procedure that does not require surgery or hormones. There is no recovery downtime and the procedure does not have the risks associated with having your tubes tied. Nearly one million women have undergone the procedure, and it is one of the most trusted forms of birth control available.

Essure® is a simple procedure that can be performed in the comfort of our office. Most women return to normal activities in less than a day.

How does it work?

Inserts are placed into the fallopian tubes and the tip of each insert remains outside the tube. During the next three months, your body works with the inserts to form a natural barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the eggs since the tubes are blocked. Your ovaries continue to release eggs, but they are absorbed back into the body. Three months after the procedure, you will have an Essure Confirmation Test to verify you’re protected from unplanned pregnancy.

Most insurance plans cover Essure. Check with your inurance carrier to be sure.
